It's much more fun to play with friends who are preferably on the same level of experience as yourself. The game is fun, but much of the fun is the shared experience of playing with friends. It's best to play in a group of friends playing against each other, this can create a great experience of friendly competition and makes for many laughs. Playing against guys who are much better than you, and who may be using guns that are considerably better in accuracy and rate of fire, can make the game less fun for the first timer. If you are a very active and fearless kind of person, then you may learn quickly how to play, and how to stay in the game. Here are some important tips for those kind of guys- the closer you get to the bad guys, the more accurate your gun will be. Likewise the more accurate theirs will be, but at least you may hit them if you get the chance. AIM down the barrel. -The better the paintballs you buy, the more accurate your shots will be, likewise the cheaper the balls, the more likely they will be inaccurate. -If you rent a gun, make sure that it is shooting at the field legal speed. Most fields set the rental guns, but don't care if they're not shooting up to speed. Shooting lower than the bad guys will limit your accuracy and range. You can ask to check and up the speed, even if the refs say you don't need to, an experienced player might help you if the refs won't. - bring paper towels and maybe antifog spray to clean your goggles. You can't hit the bad guys if you can't see them, and you can't see them if your rental goggles are fogging up or dirty. If you can't see, ask for a new set from the rental office. -Clean your barrel. Take off the barrel and look inside of it. Don't do this with the barrel on the gun-duh. If it looks smooth it'll shoot straighter, if it looks like there's gunk inside, the shots will be inaccurate. The ref or some other player will have a swab or squeegee to clean it, ask them to show you how. Good luck

There are no set rules about this, however you should be aware that experienced paintballs will not be sensitive to your inexperience and may exploit this, you are better to stick to your own level of experience.

Paintball gun


Paintball guns that are semi-automatic are generally more reliable and rugged than their electronic counterparts as they have a smaller number of moving parts. They are particularly preferred by beginner and intermediate level players who are discovering how to play the game, relying on a reliable gun rather than player skills. To get the guidance you may look on to Paintball Gun Buying Guide.

If a player gets hit with a paintball that doesn't break, is he still out?


In most paintball games and tournament play, a paintball impact but non-break is non-elimination. It is good sportsmanship to call out "bounced" or "didn't break" if he/she is hit but does not receive paintball splatter.

Is there a minimum age limit to play paintball?


It really depends on the field operators, a lot of them have a 16 years minimum age limit, however there are some that allow younger players around the ages of 12 - 16 supervised by parents.

I am trying to use the 98 custom for the first time. Is all I need to do is screw in the canister and then fire?


Yup.. ultimately that's all you have to do. There's no setup other than that, but to play you really want to use a chronograph to check the speed of the paintball. That is adjustable and the staff at your nearest paintball store or field can certainly line you up properly.

Good luck!

Do I have to take the gun apart to get the battery in the gun??? and also before i was done with the gun my brother put the paintballs in the hopper but for some reason they were falling out of the...


No, you didn't do anything wrong...

Paintballs come in a variety of sizes. That difference is very hard to see with the naked eye, but your barrel knows what fits and what doesn't. Players have a choice in barrels and ID-internal dimensions, so the balls are various sizes as well. You will have to sample a few brands and see what works best for you.

Good luck!

I have a semi auto alpha black. When im firing on semi auto sometime the gun switches quickly to fully auto and releases lots of CO2 without really shooting any paintballs


Does this only happen when you're low on air? Also, make sure you're using a good paintball oil for lubrication and make sure the marker is clean. It's possible for an o-ring to leak, or once it gets cold to leak, so make sure you use the proper o-ring for the proper location (lots of them look alike so keep them labeled and bagged separately).

Good luck!

98 Custom Act Paintball Gun: i want it to go fasteer...


I can take that a couple of ways. Do you mean you want to fire more balls per second or you want the paintballs themselves to fly faster?

If you want to fire faster, make sure it's clean and properly lubed with a quality oil that made for paintball. Practice makes perfect and fire that ****** as often as you can, even without paint (that's cheaper!) so you can get your trigger finger in shape.

There are custom mods to the trigger, or you can buy a trigger that's smoother or a shorter pull. There are electronic trigger assemblies that make firing faster even easier.

If you're talking about making the balls fly out of the gun faster, that would be the "velocity adjustment". Your user guide shows you how to make that adjustment and which direction is up, and which is down.

A good suggestion is to check out a local field or paintball store, or an airsmith and they can give you some definite ideas you will want to pursue.

Good luck!

Paintball gun problem


First off, make sure it's clean, and lubed with a quality oil made for paintball.

If you're sure the o-rings are good (as in relatively new) it's pretty hard to tell just from looking as it doesn't take a lot of damage to leak air.

Try a different tank, just to be sure. Make sure it's full.

**** it. If that stops it there's a clue.

If it's had some use it's possible to have a bad/weak spring and the valve isn't closing entirely. Make sure your velocity is less then 300fps.

Check out your local airsmith or field and they should be able to get you squared away if none of that helps.

Good luck!

I added a stock to my tippman 98 custom and it seems that the guns performance is not as good as it was before am i doing something wrong?


Check and make sure that it's secured properly and that the spring is seated correctly in the back.

Make sure it's clean and lubed with a quality oil made for paintball.

If neither of those is the culprit keep trying to use it. The feel will definitely be a little different and it may just "seem" like it's not the same gun, because it's not. Some players like a stock, and some not, and some don't know until they've tried one. Practice with it for a while and see if you're view changes (assuming the above isn't an issue).

If you decide it has problems, check out your local airsmith and make sure everything else is in good shape.

Good luck!
